Gala Games tokens drained by project claiming to help them; Huobi claims the project profited

There was some brief panic on November 3 as someone minted a huge number of $GALA tokens in what appeared to be an exploit. $GALA is the native token of Gala Games, a platform for distributing blockchain-based games. It turned out that the pNetwork project had discovered a vulnerability in the pNetwork bridge, which could have allowed someone to drain the entire pool. pNetwork decided to undertake their own "white hat" attack, draining the funds before a malicious exploiter could do so.

However, the Huobi crypto exchange has claimed that pNetwork's actions were not white hat, and that they profited $4.5 million from their actions. pNetwork rebutted that they had not made any money from the operation, and threatened to sue Huobi over the accusations.

Some traders who attempted to "buy the dip" and profit from the plunge in value of the GALA tokens were also upset with Huobi, when they found that the exchange had replaced their tokens with new, worthless $pGALA tokens.
